McLean SouthEast

Adolescent Acute Residential Treatment (ART), Middleborough, MA

Mark Picciotto, PhD, Program Director
Charles Moore, MD, Medical Director

The McLean SouthEast Adolescent Acute Residential Treatment (ART) Program is an intensive, short-term and highly focused treatment program for teenagers with emotional and behavioral difficulties. Located in Middleborough, Mass., the ART serves up to 20 individuals, ages 13 to 19, in a coeducational therapeutic environment.

Treatment Approach

In-depth evaluation of each patient allows for the development of a personalized treatment plan. Treatment covers the full psychiatric spectrum, including mood and thought disorders and their associated behaviors, family and school difficulties, and substance abuse. Patients may need intense verbal support during their stays, but are expected to maintain self-control without the need for physical management. The ART staff specializes in making sophisticated assessments, diagnoses and recommendations in complex situations.

Treatment emphasizes skills development, which enables patients to learn most effectively and return safely to the community. In this context, families are welcomed onto the unit and are considered a critical part of the treatment team. As a resource and partner within the community, the ART makes extensive effort to involve community treaters, including therapists, agencies and schools, in treatment and after-care planning.
